Default PICS: Pune Vintage Bike Exhibition, May 2015

The Vintage Motorcycle Club of Pune (VMC, Pune) which was formed in year 2013, organized the first ever Exclusive Vintage Motorcycle Showcase in Pune, held at Amanora Town Centre on 23rd & 24th of May 2015.

As planned, this event was dedicated to showcase Vintage and Classic Motorcycles ranging from the pre-war era to the 1970’s. The event also offered visitors a unique opportunity to interact with owners of these machines.

Exhibition included a 1938 Military Triumph, Triumph Tiger T100, BSA Sloper , Triumph Speed Twin, Indian and many more. I went to this exhibition along with fellow Pune BHPians //M (Arunabh), Ricci (Rahul) & Vaibhav.Amlekar(Vaibhav), and needless to say we enjoyed the event

I have tried to capture the model name with every bike for easy reference. Enjoy the coverage!

Nice coverage Aficionados.

Can't help admiring the efforts the owners of these beauties must be putting in to keep them in tip-top shape. Triumphs, Moto Guzzis, BMWs, Nortons - they are all there.

Must say, the Honda 125T looks quite a lot better than some of the bikes they sell today.

Looks like the original one. Found following images on Google which matches to the one displayed in exhibition. Experts may throw more light though.

'Tis not at all radical for that era. Nor is it modified.

Very much an original specimen- with a 1953/54 Bombay registration- to boot!

Pune rallies are sooo typical- You always see 'em regulars. Seeing 'em BYF registered bikes makes me very happy indeed.

The report could've been a lot better written- but still; well written.

The rally is organized frequently at the same venue- And I'm typically present.

Dynesh Samant's Norton Manx is a particular joy to behold- Always the star of the show, IMO. He also owns a Mercedes Benz Ponton; bearing 1965 Bombay registration MRZ 6049. A very well restored specimen; indeed.

Inspires me to get a Mercedes Benz W111 soon.

Once again; thanks for putting this up.

A short report had come in today's TOI : http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/47410580.cms

Aficionados thanks a lot man for covering this. I wonder why the organizers didn't advertise this in advance. I would have surely rode/drove down to Pune for seeing these timeless beauties. I am a self confessed enthusiast for vintage motorcycles and these pictures really made my day. To see motorcycles like Norton(Dominator and Atlas), RE(Super Meteor), Triumph(Tiger), BMW R70, AJS, Matchless, etc. Infact I liked all of them. Hats off to the owners/collectors for keeping these beauties in immaculate shape and painstakingly taking good care of them.

Although I dont like scooter I make an exception for anything that reads Vespa and Lambretta. That 1952 125cc Lambretta looks like a crank driven scooter, looks amazing and well maintained.

Thanks for that useful information. I knew experts like you would add more information here, thus kept the report short while adding more pictures.

They did advertise this event in advance in newspapers, but may be limiting to Pune.

Nice pics... My two pice. Of the two BMW's MRX 2755 is a R50 S (500 cc Sport) end fifties you can tell by the cylinder heads and the tappet covers. The second BMW MH 12- EE- 7791 is an early 70's R 60/5 (600cc twin).
Cheers
